A: The beer is slightly hazy reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering he surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: A rather complex mixture of citrusy and floral hops is present in the nose along with notes of caramel malts and hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has a little more balance with the caramel malts and citrusy hops. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice balance between the citrusy hops and caramel malts.

Bottled 4/2012.

Pours a murky copper with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

unexpectedly yeasty and hoppy, with floral aromas and a bitter aftertaste.

Very floral smell and taste. Piney sort of hops, similar to an IPA. poured a lovely red/gold and had a nice cream head that stayed for the majority of the drink. Mouthfeel was pretty light for a beer that is 6.8%. I could session this beer. Very nice.

Uncapping the beer releases light grains, a touch of tartness, grassy hops and some citrus notes and light fruit. Pours orange amber with a slight haze under a thick, 2” rocky, protein heavy head. The lace is thick and clingy. Light caramel to toffee joined by light fruit and malt spice roll over the tongue culminating in a light bitter accent. Has a creamy, above average body and average carbonation.

10/17/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Reminds me of ESBs from UK. Leaned hoppy from a straight ahead bitter, yet not quite to the IPA stage. Not bad, but off the mark for my un-hoppy tastes.
